"Typing in Tongues"

"Typing in Tongues" September 1, 2011

Televangelist Juanita Bynum is on the cutting edge of religulousness:

Some of the visitors to Bynum’s Facebook page took this seriously enough that they asked her for translations of what she typed.  Others noted that typing in tongues is not biblical, which makes me wonder whether Christians should consider themselves allowed to type at all since there is no mention of any kind of typing in the Bible. Deep theological quandaries.

But in the comments section to the article, the commenters have all sorts of impressive evidence that Bynum is a false prophet. All sorts of not-at-all-arbitrary tests like—there was no interpreter for what she said, so obviously it’s not real. And the text seems to give the impression that the tongues-typing happened beyond Bynum’s control whereas true speaking in tongues is supposed to be done on purpose. That exposes that Bynum is a false prophet. She gives the impression that typing in tongues happens as a sudden uncontrollable event but that’s impossible, so she actually is doing it on purpose. Which means, she is in control which I guess means she is a true prophet after all.
Theology is just too complex for me.
